It's good to see NCAA D-1 college basketball finally off the launch pad.
With the prospects of a complete season still hanging in the air, why not just go ahead and predict a national champion during this opening week salvo. Anyone can embark on such a fool's errand, so who you got?
From this corner, I see the Illinois Fighting Illini (3-0) cutting down the nets on the 2020-21 season. Coach Brad Underwood's squad is bolstered by the return of Ayo Dosunmu and Kofi Cockburn, who both bypassed the NBA draft to return to Champaign. Freshman-of-the-year candidate, guard Adam Miller, will fulfill the '.and a little child shall lead them'.. prophecy.
Happy Thanksgiving to all contenders and pretenders alike. Please stay safe!!!
